Allied Member Spotlight: Gama Sonic Solar Lighting

July 11, 2019 | Allied Member Spotlight: Gama Sonic Solar Lighting |
This week, we caught up with Matt Cohen, Director of Commercial Sales at Gama Sonic Solar Lighting, a company that creates high-quality, environmentally friendly outdoor solar lighting products that solve the challenges of homeowners, neighborhood associations, park administration services, and commercial property management. Gama Sonic develops, manufactures and markets consumer and commercial/industrial-grade solar-powered, energy efficient, custom lighting solutions.

Number of years business has been around? 15 years

Where are you located? Norcross, GA.

What is the most rewarding aspect of working with Main Streets?
Revitalization projects that incorporate and install our solar lighting to save money and eliminate some of their electric bills or expensive costs to run wiring and conduit.

What is the biggest change you’ve noticed since you first entered the industry?
Being the leader in the solar lighting industry, we are always manufacturing new solar lighting designs with longer duration and brighter light.

What’s the one thing you wish every Main Street manager knew about your product?
By converting existing streetlights to solar saves each community thousands of dollars each year in electricity and/or gas bills and also reduces their carbon footprint. Not to mention the beautiful aesthetics our solar lights offer Main Streets across the country with zero wiring, digging, and trenching.  Most Main Streets can utilize their existing poles by removing their existing lamps and sliding on our solar lights to their existing poles.

What is the biggest challenge you see facing Main Streets today? Decision makers for revitalization projects are unfamiliar with how far solar lighting has truly come and where we are today. The solar lighting of today vs 20 years ago is truly remarkable.
